Be carful

Great flipper built like a tank but not 5 stars in my opinion I've snapped three screws already and I've been through a sexbolt and a zen pen
My first brs product
brennan h.
This is my first high end balisong and I'm definitely happy I went with BRS.
BRS does it again!
Chris B.
First of all, the knife looks amazing with the carbon fiber scales. But most important, it flips like a dream!
Almost perfect
Julio P.
This knife of youíre not used to a standard replicant is perfect. The carbon fiber makes it a little too light. I prefer the G-10. Itís still a great knife
Jonathan M.
This knife flips perfectly and is super smooth. No Handle play at all and no blade rub.
Best Balisong I Have Flipped
Dayton G.
This is by far my favorite flipper as of the time writing this review. From owning all 3 BRS Balisongs I enjoy this one the most. I was thinking I would be able to tell the weight difference from the standard but honestly they feel the same weight in hand. Now actually holding and feeling the scales are much different. The Cf scales seem a lot smoother and more comfortable in hand (preference). Still flips amazing like the standard. You can still expect to chip the tip of the blade. The only true downside I could say about this knife is taking it apart and putting it back together is a pain, but other than that I give this knife easily a 5/5.
Amazing version of a great knife
Mitchell E.
Oh boy. Another BRS premium Replicant.

-Razor sharp and ready to flip out of the box.
-Amazing flipper.
-Carbon fiber handles look and feel great.
-BRS signature latch can't get stuck in between handles, if you choose not to remove it.
-On the light side, but nowhere near as light as a BM51.
-Blade is absolutely gorgeous.
-BladeHQ is great to order from as always.

-A bit pricier for a small upgrade.
Sleek- Smooth- Sharp
Matthew B.
This knife really sings to me. It swings and pivots in the hand with ease, almost as though its begging to be flipped. The balance on this knife lends itself to tricks seamlessly and leaves you craving that "just five more minutes of practice" any time you have to put it down. Its as much an adult toy as a tool or a knife. Short the price I'd almost call it a must try.
BRS or bust!
David B.
I'm trying to write a review, but I can't put it down long enough to type! Just buy one! You won't be disappointed! Dealing with Blade HQ was top notch, as always!
Oh yeah!!
Evan L.
Silky smooth and sassy flips! Would recommend to friend or enemy. Blade hq was wicked fast too, what a hook up.

P.s. for real though, wow flips awesome. If still in stock grab one from knife center while you can
A Solid Addition
Eric D.
Pros: Great for flipping. Well balanced, crowned spine is comfortable, carbon fiber feels smoother than G-10 version but still offers adequate grip, and latch design prevents latch from impeding flipping.

Cons: Fit and finish is almost perfect though I noticed some machining marks near the chevrons. Fortunately it's difficult to notice unless pointed out and observed closely.
Love it
John p.
This rep is awesome. The carbon fiber feels amazing, I thought it might be slippery but its vary grippy. Well worth the money imo way better then my 51.
No way to put down
Jason z.
I just can't put this knife down it's amazing I have always wanted a rep this experience went past my expectations can't wait to see modded.
A true performer!
Robert C.
Ok, so I own a custom infinity, and a second hand premium replicant. Wasn't sure this would be much different than the other rep, but I was wrong. It feels soo sturdy. Build quality is superb. It's actually kind of sharp too! I don't find it weighs any less than the premium rep, but that is just me feeling it out. Actually, feels a bit heavier almost. But the CF is a great feel. Almost has a rubbery feel which makes it easy to grip and do more advanced tricks with. I was surprised guys; it just feels incredibly professional, and well built. I absolutely recommend this to anyone who likes those larger handle-sized balisongs. It's a real deal performer!
Good flipper, finish not great
Trevin S.
The knife came sharp, well tuned, and performs very well. The knife feels great. However, not 5 stars in my opinion. The finishing of the carbon fiber is relatively sloppy and resulted in little chipped out voids near the handle textured areas. Otherwise it's very smooth! Blade finish is also not great, mine came with a few obvious machining flaws on the primary bevel that look like scotchbrite rubs. On the flats there are diagonal strokes underneath the stonewash, isn't consistent on either side and looks like the finishing work was cut short before the stonewash. Overall if you don't care about some minor finishing details you'll be very happy with this top level flipper!!
High Quality Balisong
Jota H.
The Carbon Fiber Replicant is amazing! It is all you would expect from BRS and is an excellent addition to any flippers collection. I am glad they went with the 154 cm to keep the cost down a bit. Thank you Blade HQ, for partnering with BRS and helping people like me to have the opportunity to enjoy another high quality Balisong!
Another Awesome BRS Release
Gregg H.
I received my Carbon Fiber Replicant today and can't put it down!! ... and to think this purchase almost didn't happen... I have eight other BRS bali's and wasn't sure if the carbon fiber rep would be unique enough to make it worth adding to my collection... but I got caught up in the thrill of the drop date and pulled the purchase trigger... so glad I did... I love this knife!! Thanks BladeHQ & BRS for another quality experience!!
Better than the infinity
Gabe S.
Now that I have two top-quality knives a can compare them. The cf rep is an amazing knife. It feels a bit blocky at first but you get used to it quickly. The weight seems to be on the heavier side, but it is counteracted by the superb balance of the knife. The lock is nowhere near as tight as the infinity which is a definite plus to this knife. It is also not too expensive for the amazing quality. Owning this makes me feel like I wasted my 460 on the infinity. The zen-pins makes for a quieter flip than tang pins. I definitely recommend this to any one, noob or pro.
